Chicago Bears Orange Jerseys

And for anyone else that will be there Sunday, just a reminder, we’re told to wear orange. (I really don’t like linking to the propaganda site, but in this case I pretty much had to). As a Bears uniform enthusiast, I’m always game to see a new Bears uniform combination. I have to say I’m […]

Vikings at Bears 2008

Is this Sunday’s contest at Soldier Field a must-win for the 3-3 Bears?  Absolutely.  It’s also a must win for the 3-3 Vikings, who have bounced back from an 0-2 start. Do I think the Bears can win?  Absolutely.  Will they?  You’d have to ask the Bears which team is going to show up.  The […]

Bernie Berrian comes back to town

Today the Chicago Tribune writes that Bears players aren’t upset with Bernard Berrian for leaving to take $42 million from the Vikings. I personally can’t blame Berrian for going, I’d leave town for $420,000 or probably $42,000 myself.  But I predict, in writing, on the permanancy of the Internet, that the Vikings will live to […]

Closing the Book on the Loss

At least I hope I can get this off of my brain after this morning. If it makes you feel any better, Bears fans, the stunning come from behind win  loss was not without precedent in Bears history. For you young-ins, the 1989 Chicago Bears season started out about as maddening as the 2008 version.  […]

Again, did that really happen?

I’m still a little stunned from Sunday and can’t muster up much this morning.  Just some random thoughts. I had a list of things I feel very positive about with the Bears this year.  There is still a lot of good that has come out of this season.  After Sunday, though, I just can’t go […]

Did I just see what I just saw?

Outhouse to the Penthouse-Jason Elam.  Penthouse to the Outhouse-me.  I still can’t freaking believe what I just witnessed. I had a full two pages of notes written on today’s Bears-Falcons game, something I rarely have a chance to do when I’m at virtually every Bears game.  But I’m not going to use most of them, […]

Bears at Falcons 2008

Nice matchup this weekend.  Then again, any Bears game before they’re out of playoff contention is a nice matchup.  The Bears could very well be 5-0 if not for a couple–just a couple–stupid errors.  By the same token, Atlanta has surprised everyone with their 3-2 record. Stopping Michael Turner and controlling the clock has been […]

Jerry is Safe, Dan

ESPN-1000 personality Dan McNeil is writing several columns for the Chicago Sun-Times, and today McNeil opines that Jerry Angelo’s future depends on the development of Kyle Orton. Don’t know that I agree with that.  The McCaskey family has shown it can be very forgiving of its executives and coaches.  As long as your name isn’t […]

Unsung Bears Players

This is a quick one this morning. You know who I’m most impressed with this season?  It’s not Matt Forte, as much of a revelation as he’s been.  It’s John St. Clair on the offense, and Israel Idonije on defense. What do you think? Share

Bears Proving Critics Wrong, Indeed

In a brief “bits” column today, the Chicago Tribune reports that former NFL executive Mike Lombardi has this to say about the Bears: “The Bears know who they are and that can be half the battle in the league.  They don’t try to pretend to be anything else.  They changed defensively but didn’t show much […]
